Guest Review of To Siri With Love

This is a guest review of controversial work, “To Siri With Love” previously covered on MHN here [1], [2] and [3]. The review below is reprinted from Amazon with kind permission of its author, Dr Elena Chandler Ph.D. Revealing that this is a senior professional and academic not a basement dwelling troll helps to make demonstrate how improper it is for Judith Newman to try to have adverse reviews removed. Chandler has also posted frequently in the #BoycottToSiri Twitter hashtag.

To Siri With Love is a highly contentious book that has sparked significant public conflict between the author and the autistic community. I will review the book here and detail some of the reception of the book, which speaks volumes about the issues that have been raised about the book itself.

Before examining the content in detail, however, I would like to start by immediately addressing the most significant issue with the book, and it is an issue that effectively renders all other criticism moot: the author, Judith Newman, has written a tell-all about her 13 year old son. It includes intimate details about his masturbatory habits, a long litany of what Newman sees as intractable impairments, his humiliations and a great deal of, sadly often inaccurate, interpretation of his behaviors by Newman. Her son was/is not of an age, when he could understand the implications of this book or give his consent.

Judith Newman, Psychologist Dr Dean Parker and Amazon Reviews

Over the last two days, I have covered a number of issues with the book, “To Siri With Love” and Judith Newman its New York based author. There are a number of concerns with the book, which mostly deals with her son Gus Newman and which are set out elsewhere, in my first article as well as by third party authors [1], [2] and [3]. Now it has been revealed that Newman has enlisted her friends in writing positive reviews and reporting negative ones to have them deleted, apparently contrary to Amazon rules.

AmazonLogo

Amazon – has a detailed “Anti-Manipulation Policy for Customer Reviews” and a zero tolerance approach.

After the controversy erupted, a whistleblower approached a disability rights website, “International Badass Activists” with alleged screenshots of discussions  (archive) between Newman and her friends.

In the discussion, Newman seems to engage in getting her friends to write reviews and asking them to report adverse reviews.

It seems that to some extent her concerns are legitimate. As a customer I expect reviewers to have read the book and it is reasonable and proportionate that Amazon restrict reviews to purchasers. Whilst that will exclude some people who might have read the book elsewhere, it will certainly exclude abusive reviews by people who have not even read the book.

DeanParkerVerified

One of the screenshots shows and individual claiming to be a clinical psychologist. This concerned me.

I decided to see if I could verify the comments. One thing that concerned me was this screenshot. A person called Dean Parker claimed that they were a clinical psychologist and had used that title in representations to Amazon. I decided to see if the allegations were true.

Tracing Dr Parker did not take long. He is a New York State licensed psychologist, number 008022. (confirmed here). I asked him if the statement was accurate. He responded (amongst other things), “[…] She gave permission for my commentary on the page […]”. So the context appears to be correct.

At no time during our correspondence did he deny that the screenshot was real, although he did at one point threaten that he has no less than two licensed attorneys he is related to willing to sue me. The reason I was concerned though, was the content of the book he was endorsing and the appropriateness of a licensed professional doing so.

Shameful Labour Expel 70 Year Old Disabled Woman Over Single Tweet – How She Can Sue

In a heart rending story, left-leaning blog the Skwawkbox reported how Labour have shamefully expelled a 70 year old member with a confirmed diagnosis of bi-polar disorder for a single tweet during a manic episode. A barrister, Duncan Shipley-Dalton has confirmed that this is likely unlawful under the EA 2010 and I agree. As it happens I have a knowledge of political party disciplinary case law and consider that there is also likely a claim in contract law. In this article, I have been sufficiently moved to expand on the barrister’s opinion and offer to help for free.

Two Irate Looking Judges

Some angry judges. What might happen if this went to court.

Firstly, I agree with the barrister that the conduct is indirect discrimination and in any event as he says the current rule book confers no such power. However, I would add that if it did, it would likely fall foul of –

Where expulsions from political parties are litigated, there is also case law requiring clubs and other such organisations to follow their own rules, for example, Lee v Showmen’s Guild of Great Britain [1952] 2 QB 329. I also observe that it is particularly disturbing if Labour are using a bot on either Twitter or Facebook to expel people.

Horrific Abuse Scandal at SJW Enfield Council but No Apology from Labour Leader Doug Taylor

This article is based on a judgement reported and made public by HHJ Hilder. I have discovered the identities of some of the abusers but for now I have precisely followed the judge’s anonymisations whilst I clarify the precise court orders in force. In due course I may, if necessary, apply to the court for a variation.

DougTaylorShame

SHAME – Worthless Labour councillor Doug Taylor is leader of Enfield Council. The abuse happened on his watch, yet he has not apologised to victims and their families.

Recently, the case of The Public Guardian v Matrix Deputies Ltd & Anor (Rev 1) [2017] EWCOP 14 appeared on BAILII. The case is shocking, but would have been completely secret had not Her Honour Judge Hilder commendably and of the court’s own motion made it public.

In summary, the London Borough of Enfield, by some procurement process that remains opaque (and in relation to which Enfield seem to have ignored my questions), decided to outsource the management of the property and affairs of vulnerable clients. In the UK, if a person lacks mental capacity to manage their finances due to (for example) dementia or severe learning disability, then they may be subject to a Deputyship – a court order appointing someone to do it for them.

Matrix Deputies is a UK limited company and the judge has permitted them to be named. The company and its officers were involved in Deputyships for 52 clients, 8 of which are now dead. The court proceedings began when the UK Public Guardian applied to terminate all of those Deputyships on the grounds of financial abuse. According to the schedules in the judgement, incidents of concern were occurring at least since 2014.

After the Public Guardian made the application it appears at some point the London Borough of Enfield was appointed as an interim Deputy by order of 17 February 2016 was ordered to investigate the affairs of the clients and the dealings by Matrix. This investigation was conducted on the council’s behalf by PwC, the well known accountants. The investigation cost roughly a quarter of a million pounds (£250,000) in part due to non-cooperation by Matrix Deputies. The money has yet to be fully recovered.

Female Doctor Who Jodie Whittaker Backs MenCap Campaign to Avoid Multi-million Back Pay Bill Over to Minimum Wage Workers

The new actor portraying Dr Who, Jodie Whittaker, has waded into a highly charged and controversial debate about back pay for low-paid vulnerable care workers. A number of care organisations have been found to be unlawfully paying below minimum wage and the government has been seeking back pay. Ms Whittaker has sought to help the charities avoid their liabilities, backing a campaign for the taxpayer to foot the bill instead.

I have stayed out of the heated debate about the casting of a female Dr Who. Recasting a much loved character – even changing the colour of their cape – is often a controversial topic. Fans grow attached to characters who (being fictional) are defined solely by their brand and fictional attributes. Turning the entire Time Lord people into a race of transsexuals by retconning the possibility of regeneration into another biological sex was always a controversial proposition.

The Stalkers Stalked! Troll Sets Up Sinister Site Targeting Joshua Conner Moon as Dynastia Loses his Cool

For some time now, Matthew Hopkins News has covered the depraved website Kiwi Farms. The site boasts it is set up to exploit the mentally disabled for “amusement”, has been repeatedly closed and moved in some case by hosting companies that said the site contained child pornography. Joining the site requires applicants to watch a video of vulnerable adults in unpleasant situations (such as a seriously disabled female self harming) and correctly answer questions (example archived here – video greyed out but question visible). Now in the face of police inaction, anonymous vigilantes have taken the law into their own hand and promise equally vicious escalation.

For my part, please note that I do not condone criminal activity of any kind. If this site receives emails from persons contemplating or committing serious future or ongoing criminal acts such as terrorism or violence I shall disclose them to appropriate law enforcement agencies without warning.

SinisterForumKFN

Kiwi Farms NOT (KFN) is a sinister forum set up to harass Joshua Moon’s family in retaliation for his creation, Kiwi Farms. The URL has been blacked out and although the forum can easily be found on Google it will not be linked from here. Click for full size.

The site owner of Kiwi Farms Joshua Moon (also known as Null, IBan and Ichverbot) has intentionally hosted child rape stories on his now defunct image site 16chan and boasted of masturbating to Neko Shota (cartoon child pornography featuring boys). Whilst Kiwi Farms claims that under its rules members merely comment and do not harass this is an obvious lie – they frequently post addresses and phone numbers exhorting each other to contact their victims. Terrorist threats in Pensacola, Florida and Wales, United Kingdom have been linked to the site. In January, the site went down but it was restarted this month under the same owner. Continue reading

CheckAdSenseBan.com Reports that Joshua Conner Moon’s Kiwifarms.net is Banned by Google AdSense

checkadsenseban_dot_com

Websites www.CheckAdsenseBan.Com and IsBanned.com both report KiwiFarms.net and KiwiFarms.is are banned by Adsense. Click for full size.

In the latest humiliation for Kiwi Farms and its owner Joshua Conner Moon, its Google Adverts seem to have disappeared as of a week or two ago. Whilst Google never comments publicly on such matters, two separate online tools confirm that KiwiFarms.net and KiwiFarm.is are banned.

The ban is a major humiliation for Joshua Conner Moon. Ranksays.com estimates that the site is worth $439 per month and that money is now lost to Joshua Moon and his company LOLCow LLC. It is widely acknowledged that Google are one of the best advertising networks by far.

Steam: Kiwi Farms Group Disappears, but Sickening Deviants who Ran it Remain

Gabe Newell

Gabe Newell the CEO of Valve Software, shamefully allows members of a site that exists solely to harass the disabled, women and children to remain on Steam even after they tried advertise their site, which PayPal recently banned due to its hosting of depraved abuse content. Photograph via Wikimedia Commons, CC-BY-2.0, Archive here.

Steam is one of the world’s best known and best loved gaming platforms. It revolutionised the video games market, bringing instant downloads and regular updates to millions of consumers.

Valve Software’s store, however, has a dark side in which sinister and systematic harassment of women, the mentally disabled and even pre-teen children is glorified by a small minority of users.

Recently CEO Gabe Newell and his VP of PR Doug Lombardi were warned of a Steam Group for Kiwi Farms. Whilst the group disappeared soon afterwards Steam has failed to ban the malevolent paedophile minority who made up its members and organisers.

The internet has many sites. Some are good, some are bad and some are simply revolting dregs.

One such dreg is Kiwi Farms. Their mission is clearly set out in their surprisingly honest marketing material. It is worth revisiting the logo they had on their Twitter account before I (along with others) had it permanently suspended.

The Wisdom of Daniel Schulman: PayPal Swiftly and Decisively Closes CWCKi and KiwiFarms’ Account – by Samuel Collingwood Smith

Strong Leader: PayPal CEO Daniel Schulman was personally notified of the sickening paedo-sexual abuse on CWCki and the company took swift, decisive action. Image courtesy of Wikimedia commons, CC-BY-SA-2.0 license (archive here). Author Kris Klug, Poptech.

CWCki, or ‘Christian Weston Chandler Wiki’ is a website set up by abusers to stalk a vulnerable, mentally disabled man of the same name. Many sites have been set up to stalk and harass Christian Weston Chandler (CWC) over a period of years, apparently for no better reason than he ran into the wrong people on the wrong day.

Content on the site includes lengthy and detailed transcripts and audio of phone sex between CWC and a 13-year-old boy known as BlueSpike who had been enticed into posing as a 19-year old woman for the sick amusement of the deviants who run the site.

For many years, CWCki used PayPal as a payment processor, holding an account associated with the email address, “cwcdonation@gmail.com”. PayPal terms of service (archive here) prohibit accounts being used in connection with activities that may,

Jessica Asato – Worthless SJW Narcissist, Failed Parliamentary Candidate and Hypocrite

FortunateJessica

Jessica Asato is fabulously privileged oppressed. Image an obvious parody used under s30A Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988

Failed Labour ‘Politician’ and online social justice warrior Jessica Asato recently took part in the witch-hunt against Protein World (archive here). More recently she has joined in with mob online condemnation of a lawyer as ‘sexist’ for complementing someone’s appearance. Shame Asato herself is no stranger to privilege and political incorrectness. Your Inquisitor calls on moderate cultural libertarians to join the online debate she helped to start in order to set matters right.

Condemning allegedly ‘sexist’ remarks by a respected lawyer. Labour ‘politician’ Jessica Asato remarked that, “I would rather be complimented on my achievements than my face” (archive here). The comment echoes Martin Luther King’s famous quotation, dreaming his children would, “[…] not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character […]”.

The remark is typical of Asato’s narcissistic and self-absorbed conduct – but if Jessica wants to be  judged by her achievements and character rather than her appearance your author is only too happy to help.
